DERRY (AP) — State wildlife authorities say a bald eagle found shot last week on a western Pennsylvania trail has been euthanized.

The Tribune-Review reports that the older male eagle was found Friday on the West Penn Trail in Westmoreland County’s Derry Township.

Game Warden Bill Brehun said Monday the eagle had apparently been shot by a small-caliber rifle that day or the day before. Brehun said the bird had to be euthanized due to skull injuries.

West Penn Trail Council member Cliff Wissinger discovered the bird and called the Game Commission. Another council member, Bill Rodgers, went to the trail to photograph the bird and help out. He and his wife, Dorothy Pierini-Rodgers, are offering a reward of at least $500 for information leading to prosecution of the person responsible.

Be careful. I don't think exercising any of the amendments allow you to break any laws.
They were white supremest nut jobs and Antifa criminals. Did you see the video of Antifa punks blocking an elderly lady with a walker from crossing a street? They were yelling at her and threatening to beat her up. Who supports Antifa now? Video on YouTube.
